    The Government has promised a £150 one-off Council Tax rebate for households living in band A-D properties. It will be paid in May to offset the latest Council Tax increases.

    After the extra £53 added to this year's figure, band A taxpayers will benefit by £1.87 per week. For band D it will be £1.52 per week.
    Council tax payments made by Direct Debit will have the rebate paid direct to bank accounts. Nearly 14,000 households in Newark and Sherwood who pay by other means will need to make a claim to the District Council. District Councillors Malcolm Brock and Peter Harris will be pressing the Council to make sure no Council Tax payers miss out.

    As the rising cost of living really begins to bite, a tax increase is the last thing needed. Yet Council tax has risen by 3.7 percent adding £79 to band D bills.

    Nearly 60 percent of the increase will be added to the social care levy. The Conservative Government introduced the levy in 2016 to provide extra funding for local social care. It now adds £197 to band D Council Tax.

    The County Council has finally realised that its road maintenance plan is no longer working. In the last five years a mind boggling 476,043 potholes have been filled in Nottinghamshire. No wonder that our county has been declared the pothole capital of the UK. Instead of endlessly filling one pothole after another, there will be repairs to larger sections of the road, aiming to provide a longer lasting solution.
